North Korea's generals and their medals - pic



These guys have so many medals that they have to put some of them on their pants leg. Since North Korea hasn't fought any wars in 60 years I wonder how they earned those medals.

7. They appear to have multiple numbers of the same order/medal, which is...very strange

considering that Western practice is that multiple awards are denoted by some device on the ribbon (which, come to think of it, is probably exactly why they don't do it that way)

11. The picture in the OP may be photoshopped for which I apologize, but this video made it worthwhile.

Thanks for posting it.

12. I suspect there is a translation problem here. Those have to be "merit badges," not actual medals.
